  • Introducing the LR Series from PATLITE – A Fully Modular Signal Tower Line

    PATLITE announces the LR Series of Signal Towers – its first fully modular line of signal towers, available in four industry standard sizes.  The LR series is a complete offering composed of redesigned LED lighting and body base, a re-engineered, fully-enclosed IP65 buzzer, and a modular “twist and lock” system.

    Traditional stack lights typically require additional threaded shafts or tools to reconfigure light modules.  With the LR Series, color reorganization and changing the number of light tiers is as easy as twisting modules on and off. If any part of the tower ever has to be replaced, modules, buzzers, terminal blocks, O-rings, and bases can be ordered separately with short lead times.

    The materials used to build the LR series have been upgraded from legacy models. The base has been changed from ABS resin to a new polycarbonate resin for enhanced durability, and the O-rings have been upgraded to a silicone resin for an improved seal. These changes have resulted in a more lightweight and shock resistant product. Inspired by the structure of a percussion drum, the new buzzer has been redesigned to be completely sealed, creating a louder, more even sound output. Furthermore, the IP rating has increased from IP54 to IP65 (NEMA Type 4.4X, 13), which can withstand various environmental conditions including dust, water jets and corrosion. The LED light and buzzer modules connect together creating a smooth surface for improved water runoff and easy cleaning.

    PATLITE has developed a new lens design for the LR that achieves the most even and efficient light distribution available. The new design is constructed to achieve a more uniform, 360 degree light output. This has effectively doubled the LED intensity (1000 mcd to 2300 mcd) from previous models.

    As manufacturing pioneers of the Signal Tower, PATLITE is dedicated to optimizing visual and audible indication for industrial applications by continually rethinking engineering, pushing technological boundaries and delivering products that add tremendous value to any business.  PATLITE has developed the LR series to be a truly complete signal tower line that combines precise form and function.  The LR series not only delivers superior LED light brilliance, but also delivers loud, clear sounds, is simple to install and operate, and carries high protection ratings to withstand harsh environments.

    The LR series has a range of common diameters (40mm-70mm), making retrofitting/upgrading using an existing pole or wall mount brackets easy. Other specifications include:

    • Rated Voltage  : DC24V, DC12V (LR5 only), AC100-240V (LR4 and LR6 only)
    • 85dB or 90dB alarm at 1m
    • Four buzzer sounds (including two new sounds) that can be reduced by 10dB if needed.
    • Operating Ambient Temperature -20°C to +50°C
    • Protection Rating IP65 standard (including with alarm).
    • Individual modules, bases and buzzers available for any combination up to 5 stack.
    • Approvals: UL 508, CSA-C22.2 No.14, FCC Part 15 Subpart B Class A, RoHS Directive (EN 50581), EMC Directive (EN 61000-6-4, EN 61000-6-2), KC (KN 61000-6-4, KN 61000-6-2), Low-voltage Directive (IEC/EN 60947-5-1, EN62471) – M2 Type Only

    There are an endless variety of applications for the LR Series, and it is ideal for the automotive, aerospace, construction, packaging, processing, semiconductor, and medical industries, as well as for airports, retail stores and transportation purposes.

  • Slim, Compact LED Signal Tower Series

    PATLITE’s compact signal tower series, MPS, is now also available with M12 connector. The new version, MPS-C, is as before the variant MP-C compatible with the international standards and market-leading connection system in automation

    The MP and MPS series signal towers are distinguished by high-power LEDs and patented Prism-Cut lenses for optimal visibility. At the same time the LEDs are particularly energy-saving. The individual elements are made ​​of heat-resistant, impact-resistant polycarbonate resin, which is characterized by high durability and transparency. This ensures optimal visibility from any direction and distance. The MP/MPS signal towers are particularly narrow at a diameter of only 30 mm. Their compact size is ideal for small machinery. The MP-series devices come to a height of 220 mm, while the devices of the MPS versions are only 45 mm high.

    The slender signal towers with silver finish are especially suitable for compact systems and are installed by direct mounting with only one hole. M12 versions feature up to 4 colors (red, yellow, green, blue). The connecting cables of the signal towers are suitably color coded to the LED modules, facilitating the connection and assignment. The M12 connector, which is now for the first time integrated into the execution MP-C as well as in the MPS-C variant, now allows for more versatile connection options. Since the standardized round plug has established itself in automation technology, universal compatibility is ensured for existing infrastructure.

    PATLITE has provided optical and acoustic alarms for more than six decades. Besides rotating beacons, audible alarms and OSH lights, a wide-range of LED signal lights is included in the company's portfolio, with US sales headquarters in Torrance, CA.

  • Fully Customizable, PC Programmable LED Signal Tower Now With Ethernet Connectivity

    PATLITE announces the LA6 POE LED Signal Tower - the most advanced, fully customizable signal tower series now with Ethernet (Modbus/TCP UDP) connectivity.  The LA6-POE is able to read and write all necessary data through a network connected Ethernet cable. Also, it supports PoE (Power over Ethernet), so there is no more need for input and output modules for PLCs or running wires. The LA6 series features multi-color LEDs able to display 21 colors, 11 buzzer, animated pattern capabilities (using the internal timer function) and endless flash rate settings to fit users’ unique signaling needs. No longer are users limited to the common 3 or 5 stack lights with preset colored light modules.  Instead the LA6 features clear modules equipped with multi-color LEDs, which enable users to customize the signal tower specifically for their application.

    Free, easy to use PC software is available to program the LA6’s light and sound patterns. The LA6 can then be controlled by simple discrete I/O or Modbus/TCP UDP using a PLC to display all the programs from the PC.

    The LA6 was designed to solve the drawbacks of traditional stack lights, one drawback being that individual stack light modules can be difficult to see across large plant floors. To fix this issue, the LA6 can be programmed to display one single, solid color throughout the entire unit when an error occurs, making it highly visible even from the farthest ends of a factory.

    Another issue with current stack lights is that they only show that an error has occurred, with a single blinking light, and give no additional information. The LA6 can be programmed to show any number of processes with different colors or alarm sounds, including but not limited to: indicating the severity of an error on a machine, showing the progress of a machine process, or visually indicating the depletion of tank fluids in real time. It can even be used in a countdown mode, visually aiding the pace of an assembly line.

    Workers can visualize and understand more accurate and detailed machine information at a distance without having to be tethered to an HMI.  This information can be conveyed throughout the plant floor in real time, increasing efficiencies and decreasing the need for more complicated, large-scale capital investments.

    The LA6 signal tower has a 60mm diameter, making retrofitting/upgrading using an existing pole or wall mount brackets easy. Other specifications include:

    • Rated Voltage DC24 V
    • 21 colors and 11 alarms per unit
    • 85dB alarm at 1m
    • Operating Ambient Temperature -25° C to +60° C
    • Signal Wire Current Maximum 70mA
    • Protection Rating IP65 (with alarm IP54)
    • 3 LED stack model and 5 LED stack model available.
    • Approvals: UL508, CSA-C22.2 No.14, CE, RoHS, FCC Part 15 Superpart B, Class B
    • Full color LEDs driven by microcomputer in the tower.
    • Rewritable software configurations

    There are an endless variety of applications for the LA6 REVOLITE, and it is ideal for the automotive, aerospace, construction, packaging, processing, semiconductor, and medical industries, as well as for airports, retail stores and transportation purposes.
